The Gut Microbiome-Brain Alliance: The Connection to Health and Disorders

ACS Webinars

The Human microbiota, often referred to as the "forgotten organ," is a large collection of predominantly bacteria, viruses, protozoa, fungi, and archaea. With around 40 trillion bacterial cells, its size eclipses the number of cells in your own body. But, what does the latest research tell us about this hidden ecosystem and the constant communication that exists between the gut and brain?

Join an expert panel from Bayer, the California Institute of Technology, and CAS as they discuss recent research on the gut microbiome−brain axis, its complexity, functionality, and its effect on health and disorders. Register now for free to discover how gut microbiota in humans has evolved and how it plays a key role in health and disease.

This ACS Webinar is a co-produced with CAS, a division of the American Chemical Society.

What You Will Learn

  • Examples of how the gut microbiome-brain axis uses constant bidirectional communication in its role in many physiological processes in the human body
  • What is the correlation between living microorganisms found in the gut and their effect on gastrointestinal and mental disorders
  • What are some clinical applications of gut-microbiota-related substances and metabolites with their development pipelines


What an attendee said about this ACS Webinar!

Today's webinar on the Gut Microbiome Alliance was very good. The speakers were articulate and presented interesting scientific studies that provided insight into gastrointestinal effects on mental health and disorders with significant implications for healthy living and the misuse of antibiotics.
